Clockworkpunk: The Mozart Duck Reworked


This is my last regular (re-)design job of sorts before starting the StarDucks production adventure. I'm reworking the Mozart Duck character (aka Wolfgang Amadeus Duck©). The design will be adjusted to the StarDucks style for some marketing reasons. The colour keys stay the same:

Well, this means a lot of looney Steampunk gimmicks, eh?
BTW, I prefer to use Motorpunk or Clockworkpunk to mean Steampunk. Sounds more fitting to those gear wheels and stuff. Anyway, I'll post the finished piece soon...
Apropos Steampunk, Jake radiates joy with his latest vehicle design, doesn't he?
